Actually it does get better than that. Not only was this bread delivery convenient, but they also tasted delicious.
Last week I received an email from breadsrsly.com asking if I would try out her delivery bread and review it my blog. Now who am I to say no to a new product? Of course I agreed and then anxiously waited for my Tuesday delivery. Breadsrsly.com sells two different kinds of bread and two different sandwiches four days a week in San Francisco. Mondays and Wednesdays she makes and sells sandwiches on the Yerba Buena Center Steps and at the Beach Hut Cafe, at Crissy Field, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays she delivers bread via bicycle. To keep things interesting she sells different bread and sandwiches on each of those days. I passed on the sandwiches, because I’m not around Mondays and Wednesdays, but jumped at the opportunity for a Tuesday bread delivery.
The bread arrived in a brown paper sack. I excitedly removed the two loaves and immediately photographed them.The two I received were cornbread and whole grain with fig and fennel.
I’m always looking for good sandwich bread and I found it in these loaves. First I tried the bread at home. They were both better toasted than fresh, but the fig and fennel was pretty good either way. First, I tried the corn bread toasted with butter, and quickly realized that it was more than a mere corn bread. Studded with sundried tomatoes, which I could swear, had a picante flavor I decided to top it with melted cheese. I used a creamy sheep’s milk cheese that was similar in consistency to Brie, and it was a great choice.Since a slice of bread with cheese hardly constitutes a meal, I decided to make a sandwich with the whole grain bread with figs and fennel, leftover rotisserie chicken, tomato and mayonnaise (I was out of lettuce). I find that sandwiches with condiments and tomato are the best indicators of how good a bread truly is, and how well it’s going to hold up. Most of the time when I add those two components the bread gets mushy and by the time I finish the sandwich it is a pile of wet, doughy scraps. This was not the case. Perhaps it had something to do with me keeping the slices rather thick, or maybe it was the bread itself. Either way it was a fine sandwich. Check it out for yourself!
After trying the bread at home I decided to try it at work. I toasted the bread at home, packaged it separately from the egg salad I made, and joined the two at lunchtime. To my happy surprise the bread not only held up, but also was good. The toast didn’t get hard and crumbly, and when I added the egg salad it didn’t turn in to a soggy mess. This bread gets two enthusiastic thumbs up.
